Prepaid Cremation Planning Checklist

The best time to begin planning your cremation - is now, while you're thinking about it.

While some people in their 40's and 50's may think it's too early for prepaid cremation plans, people who do say that cremation preplanning is smart financial planning and gives them added peace of mind knowing they aren't leaving this burden to family members.
 
By taking time now to gather information and making choices related to your own affordable cremation plan, you'll help to lessen some of the stress making funeral arrangements can create.

We've put together this prepaid cremation planning checklist to help you.

  • Create a contact list of everyone who should be notified of a medical emergency or death including the name of your funeral home.
  • Give your executor(s) a copy of your will and the contact list.
  • Give your executor(s) a list of bank and investment accounts, creditors, mortgage or lien information, insurance policies, retirement plans, safe deposit boxes, real and personal properties of value and all related telephone numbers.
  • If you are receiving benefits from Social Security or the Veterans' Administration, your executor needs that information to suspend benefit payments.
  • Select someone you trust to deal with your online accounts: email, online memberships, and social media. Include all relevant information and whether or not they should delete, close, or keep any of the accounts.

Taking Care of Funeral-Related Details

We suggest the following:

  • Make note of all the details you want to be mentioned in your obituary. You could even take this one step further and write your own obituary.
  • State, in writing, your preferences for cremation.
  • What do you want done with the ashes?
  • If burial is preferred for the urn, provide the details of the cemetery arrangements. If you have not purchased a cremation plot, this is the time to do so.
  • What type of urn would you like? Should it be made of wood, metal, or composite materials?
  • Would you like a traditional funeral, memorial service, or celebration-of-life?
  • If you'd like a celebration-of-life, what location would you suggest for this event?
  • What special activities would you prefer at a celebration-of-life?
  • What music or special readings would you prefer?
  • What type and colors of flowers would you prefer?
  • Would you like to select a charitable organization to receive donations in your name?
  • If you're a veteran, would you like to receive full military honors as part of your service? Would you like to be buried in the grounds of a veterans' cemetery?

If you share your life with animal companions, you should think about who you would like to take care of your pets. Consult with the person to see if this is something they are interested in doing for you and then write down your intentions and include all contact information. This should be signed and witnessed, and then given to your executor.

Final Tasks in Your Affordable Cremation Plan

In addition to your will, the contact list, and the list of all your online account login details and related documents should be provided to your executor.

Finally, you may want to consider paying ahead of time for your funeral choices. Speak to us about how your pre-payment monies will be handled.

Before You Leave

You will have the peace-of-mind knowing all the details are written down and there can be no mistaking your wishes. If you need help - we're here for you. Call us today at.
